I loved this hotel with the exception of the hard beds. The hotel has beautiful grounds that makes for a relaxing time. Make sure to make time to visit the ecological reserve on the grounds. Stunningly beautiful with many varieties of orchids, humming bird and butterfly sanctuary, and a bonsai garden. Massages were great but used a little too much... More

Just outside the city of Manizales, this hotel has a lot of green areas, gym and even a Juan Valdes store. It´s very quiet and relaxing for long stays. They also have a guided tour nearby for bird watching… very recommended!

If you are looking for a quiet and secluded place this might be it. Bear in mind that it is far away from city's downtown and you'll need a cab to get there as there is no bus service nearby. Tip: tell the staff you prefer a room on the far side of the hotel. Those rooms are bigger and... More

This is just a business hotel. It is perfectly clean, modern, and comfortable. It is also soul-less. Though it is located within a wonderful park, you have to pay separately for the park entrance and tour so there is nothing to be gained by staying at this hotel and there is absolutely nothing located nearby. Without a car you would... More

I went last year with my boyfriend and we fell in love with the location and the service. We were so happy that we let our family know and now we all are coming back in November. I do recommend to upgrade the room for a bigger one. We are so excited to stay and go back to Colombia.

The grounds and forest around the hotel worth the visit! If you are nature lover this is the option for you in manizales. There are awesome landscapes and ecoturism attractions: birds, butterflies and bonsais gardent among others. The hotel is a little old but has everything you need. There are no air conditioning so nights can be cold. Internet is... More

The room was smaller than a cabin on a ship . We were 2 people. The room was cold and damp.The location was in the middle of no where. The scenery was beautiful around it. The breakfast was fair. I did get a floor heater from the desk since there is no air conditioning or heat in this hotel.

Hotel grounds and food are great. Rooms are a wee bit small, but in a magnificent setting. Every time a guest stays at this hotel, it is helping to support ecological research.
